El hijoputa más peligroso del mundo

"Until a man is twenty-five, he still thinks, every so often, that under the right circumstances he could be the baddest motherfucker in the world. If I moved to a martial-arts monastery in China and studied real hard for ten years. If my family was wiped out by Colombian drug dealers and I swore myself to revenge. If I got a fatal disease, had one year to live, and devoted it to wiping out street crime. If I just dropped out and devoted my life to being bad.
Hiro used to feel this way, too, but then he ran into Raven. In a way, this was liberating. He no longer has to worry about being the baddest motherfucker in the world. The position is taken."

Snow Crash. Neal Stephenson

Debido a que la juventud se ha ampliado en los últimos veinte años yo aplazaría esa frontera de los veinticinco, pero sea como sea Neal Stephenson nos tiene calados.
